Mouthguards are dental devices worn to protect the soft tissues of the mouth and teeth when engaging in contact sports and recreational activities.
This protective dental device absorbs and cushions the blow when an accident occurs.
The accidents that mouthguards can considerably reduce are listed below:
- Soft tissue injuries
- Fractured/cracked tooth
- Knocked out or avulsed tooth
- Loose tooth
- Fractured/cracked tooth
Custom-made mouthguards are the best mouthguards. They are created in a dentist’s office or a qualified laboratory and are customised for each wearer.
A mouthguard is then manufactured from an impression of your teeth made by your Main Beach dentist using a mould.
The most comfortable and protective mouthguard is a custom-made one, which is more expensive than other choices.
Most mouthguards protect the upper teeth, but in some cases, depending on other protective gear, your oral health, and your sport, your dentist may advise a mouthguard for the lower teeth as well.
At-home Care for Mouthguards
Take care of your mouthguard by following these easy steps:
- When you use your mouthguard, wash it with cold water or a mouthrinse.
- To store and travel the mouthguard, put it inside a sturdy, perforated box. This permits airflow and shields the mouthguard from harm.
- Avoid exposing the mouthguard to high temperatures to reduce distortion.
- Look for general wear on the mouthguard. Replace it immediately if you discover any holes or tears or if it becomes loose or hurts.
- Every time you visit your Main Beach dentist for a check-up, bring the mouthguard.
